Martin to host Oscars®

Nov 08, 2002 by Ian Evans

Steve Martin will be the host of the 75th Annual Academy Awards® next March. Martin joked tat the gig would be good for his figure.

“I’m very pleased to be hosting the Oscars again, because fear and nausea always make me lose weight.”

This will be Martin’s second stint hosting the Oscars. His first was in 2001. Telecast producer Gil Cates said, “The 75th anniversary show is a meaningful one for the academy, and it is wonderful to work with a host who’s done it before. A host who’s witty, clever, sharp, intelligent, quick on his feet and always on top of the unfolding action.”
